The Sustainability Report centres around four strategic pillars: governance, Products, Operations, and people, which serve as guiding principles for ESG-related matters at Badger Meter. The report highlights several advancements, including:
Establishing a more ambitious greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity reduction target, building upon the strong performance achieved from the original 2020 baseline and goal, both in absolute and intensity terms.
Sharing details from a global employee engagement survey, with an impressive 93% participation rate in the second annual survey. Employees voiced their perspectives on areas of strength and opportunities for improvement while working at Badger Meter.
Incorporating additional data elements aligned with reporting standards such as GRI, SASB, and TCFD, encompassing tax and public policy spending.
